Full Answer

Mastweilers are typically bred to have the preferred characteristics of each parent. For example, these dogs tend to be homebodies like Mastiffs, so they do not roam. Their Mastiff half makes Mastweilers more agreeable to being disciplined; however, the Rottweiler genes help Mastweilers be more alert than Mastiffs. Also, Mastweilers often have Rottweiler-shaped mouths; as a result, they produce less drool than Mastiffs.
